          Your Welcome 🙂
          Actually this method is working for Jellybean OS with Motorola Droid Maxx. Your device has Android 4.4.2 Kitkat which is not supported by this method. You should try this method for root access on Android 4.4.2. Kitkat.

    This method is suitable for Droid Maxx DE?Or the DE feature? I just thought that DE should be easier

      Hello Denis,
      This method is tested on Droid Maxx only. Try at your own risk…

    I have the Droid Maxx Developer Edition with the unlockable bootloader, which I purchased directly from Motorola. There aren’t any custom ROM’s available for this device yet, so installing a custom recovery doesn’t seem like it would do me much good right now. But I definitely want to root my device, so that I can re-enable Wi-Fi tether (PdaNet+ and all the other non-root tether apps seem to be broken on this device) and gain more control over the device’s settings for my Tasker scripting.

    My question is this: Will obtaining and using the bootloader unlock code from Motorola (which doesn’t cost me anything but my warranty) be of any benefit in using this (or any other) exploit to root this device?

      Hey Greg
      Actually rooting of Android is mainly used for Installing Custom Rom…
      But their are many other benefits of Rooting
      Like Hack Paid Games and Paid Apps Easily, Overclock Processor , Many Apps need Root access, Delete of edit system files or apps..
